Top Ten Most Underrated Animals
The Top Ten
Whenever I tell people I have a pet rat they share their fictional reasons that I shouldn't be keeping a rat. A rat is a low maintenance, cute, docile and loving pet where most individuals never damage your property, the same can not be said about any other pet.
They are the best animals on earth! They are smart, clever, clean, sociable, and totally loveable. They make the best pets too. It's a shame everyone seems to think that they are gross, dirty and mean creatures because of some stupid stereotype when they are actually the exact opposite.
Should be number 1. They are best pets ever!
Adorable smart little rodents.
Please tell me what a megatherium is but if anything this can be underrated
This is a prehistoric animal...why is this here?
Megatherium is a giant sloth that lived during the early Pliocene.
Mostly underrated because they don't even exist anymore...whatever.
Mice are the most underrated animals ever. Mice are among the cutest creatures on the planet, yet they are the most hated. Cartoon mice are not safe from hatred either. Especially not Jerry Mouse. - Svampbob164
For some reason people prefer rats over mice. I think diffrently so I'm voting mice
Without a doubt Earth's cutest animal - RoleplayerR
Yes! Underrated and adorable. CUTE! - Knep
Oh my gosh, blobfish look so funny!
Blobfish are ugly and overrated. Take this off the list
Overrated? Absolutely, mostly because so ugly. Underrated? NEVER.
Oh my god! So funny!
I love these creatures! They are majestic and intelligent. They are one of the earth's smartest animals, and were even proven to be smarter then a adult and 9 year old. Impressive! They are also my second favorite animal! - DerpaHerpaMerpa
Crows are really underrated animals.
They can be a good pet like parrot, pigeons, etc. but it's really unlikely for someone to pet these animals although they can be as loyal to you as any other animals.
Caw caw NOICE - lemur
Goats will eat anything and make meat and cheese. They also emit less gasses then cows. They are the ultimate sustainable livestock.
Some people don't even know what a goat is. Sad!
I agree it is sad me and my familey have 3 pet goat's yes they eat a lot but whatever
This list is also underrated along with the animals
What's a liger? - Userguy44
A liger is the offspring of a male lion and a female tiger. They don't exist naturally in the wild. - Gg2000
*le gasp* I love Ferrets! Who doesn't? They are such good pets and very smart as well as adorable. - DerpaHerpaMerpa
Sponges? At least in my kitchen sink they aren't underrated. - DerpaHerpaMerpa
If anything this is an overrated animal
Yes! Moose are extremely dangerous and have been known to kill people. They are very large and heavy, but can run very fast. They have majestic antlers each over a metre long, and they are one of the largest species in the deer family. A large male moose is more than capable of killing an adult wolf, just one well-placed kick. They are very important for the ecosystems where they live, keeping plant growth down so that seedlings can flourish. They also fertilise the earth with their dung! So in a way, they farm their food, by "harvesting" (eating the leaves of plants and trees, and consuming grass) and then "regrowing" (returning the nutrients to the ground via poop, so that they will have more food n the future). Also, moose calfs (babies) are really cute!
Seriously. Who even talks about Moose anymore? Ya ever noticed that?
I too think moose should be higher
I actually find them cute. They aren't that bad to me, if anything, its interesting that they can do that with their mouths. - DerpaHerpaMerpa
Look at that face. How does it not have a horror movie?
Yas! I love Hyenas! They are my favorite wild dog and they deserve much more then what they get. They are much better then wolves, and actually very smart. - DerpaHerpaMerpa
Why aren't hyenas higher on the list? It's like nobody cares about these unique, awesome little warriors
Finally! I love hyenas! They are my life! I don't understand why people hate them. Hyena haters need to do more research. Hyenas are good animals and hunt 90% of the time! I say hyenas are the MOST underrated animal in the world! Now I like lions but THEY ARE OVERRATED. Hyenas are beautiful animals that need more respect.
They're good animals for goodness sake. May be dangerous but still not worth the hate. A certain animated movie got everything wrong with it's awful characters.
Not to be rude, but it's literally a floating potato lmaoo.
I love potato’s who doesn’t?! Plus I lLOVE MANATEEE
They're not dirty, fat slobs who live for the sole purpose of being eaten. They are intelligent, emotional, and clean animals that deserve to live a full life. - keycha1n
Have you heard the expression " I'm seating like a pig." Pigs don't actually sweat. - Connor360
Pigs are actually very cute, smart and they make good pets. It's a common misconception that they're stupid and ugly.. Pigs are misunderstood.
Pigs are one of the smartest animals on Earth and they're awesome. I don't eat pork, bacon, ham, sausages, pepperoni or things that have pig meat because I love pigs.
Pigs are my favorite animal! it should be much higher than this.
They deserve more respect! They may look ugly but they eat ants and we don't want them in the house
From what you stated, they deserve to become pets.
Ok listen up buddies. Why is this amazing beast under the log attention wise?! And I’m going to answer some questions you might be thinking.
1. There not strong: Buddy, the giant anteater is equipped with foot long claws, and has killed leopards before, they are also very territorial.
2. There ugly: That’s what most wolf lovers say. They only like overrated crap, also take a closer look, anteaters have a amazing color pallet and are pretty adorable.
3. There’s nothing unique about them: With a 2+ foot long tounge, foot long front claws, walking on its knuckles, thin shouted, and a bushy balancing tail, think again.
Even if I do have a phobia of them to the point to whare if I see a small black spider in the corner of my room I scream and name it the devil instantly, some are cute to me. I'm alright with Jumping spiders, but also, please don't call them underrated just because us Phobics are afraid of them. It's my instinct to scream. - DerpaHerpaMerpa
Many people think that they're dreaded pests like flies. There would be many more flies and other pests if it weren't for the spiders.
Spiders are the 8est! :::
Yeah I love spiders, and all animals, but people hate spiders because of stereotypes. They even say they aren’t animals and are just creatures
Sharks are actually very intelligent. NOT just mindless killing machines. There have actually been only around 1,000 recorded attacks since 2012. Honestly, they're intelligent. Nobody gets that.
They aren't as dumb as their name and look would suggest.
Donkeys are beautiful.
Wolves and lions are overrated because of their looks. Honey badgers are brave, determined, strong, confident, and intelligent
Badger! Yes they killed Cinderpelt but that's fiction.
NOO THEY KILLED CINDERPELT! - RoseWeasley
Super important for the ecosystem!
Aaahhh I want one so bad! - DerpaHerpaMerpa
Instead of Danger Noodle, I call them Elongated Sticks - DerpaHerpaMerpa
These creatures are awesome! ( and fun too... )
This is one epic crab. Deserves more attention.
I'm not officially part of this site( just a visitor), but I care about them. They're the most underrated feeders on the ocean floor.
Honestly, these little guys are very underrated and hated by many people. Without them, everything would go crazy. Rodents, as well as deer populations, would burst and become chaos. Many poachers or hateful people say: "Shoot these vermin dogs on sight, they all deserve to die". And they also get blamed for missing children and pets. First of all, it's the parents' or owner's fault that they left their pet/child unsupervised. Coyotes are just trying to live. Anyways, they are important and do not deserve the hate they are getting. They are also intelligent too, and in my opinion, they are gorgeous! They are a symbol of a trickster and laugher because of how clever they are. Awesome animals! - MimahVentura
Has more friends than me. - RoseWeasley
I love them
Polar bears aren't underrated. They're quite popular. - DinoLover4242
Polar bears are my favorite animal! They deserve a higher ranking
SOOO TRUE! Polar bears are my favorite!
Overrated in the extreme
There are many species of frogs that are just adorable! Many people think they are just slimy, annoying animals but they are not, there are lots of unique, dangerous, colorful, and cute species of frogs out there, and there are some types that would make good pets too believe it or not. In late summer, green frogs will actually make a song sounding like someone is plucking a banjo, and that's just amazing. - whattheheckamidoing
Capable of killing a moose/elk and there is at least one report of a wolverine killing a POLAR BEAR (I believe it escaped it's enclosure at a zoo if I'm not mistaken). - JKolodne
Pokémon gave this guy some love in 2 different mons. Yet still this little dude is unknown. I think they're adorable.
Underrated to the extreme - SirSalvador
Take zebras off the list. They are actually popular so they can't be on the list
This isn't least well known, it's underrated. Nobody really talks about "WOW ZEBRAS ARE COOL! "
You may think Zebras are quote on quote "overrated" because it is quite common that fashion, phone cases, pillow cases, etc. Will have zebra print on them, but that doesn't mean necessarily the animal, who's design they are using, is "overrated." When do you ever hear someone talking about Zebra? When do you ever hear someone say "Wow, Zebra are so amazing! "
Because I haven't.
Personally, Zebra are my favourite animal. There is something about them that is so endearing and charming, I love their quirky yet sophisticated nature and they are incredibly beautiful. I think Zebras need more love, they are magnificent.
So does the pigbutt worm live up to its name or - LizardKing99
Evolution really took a dump on these guys
Titanoboa is the Queen of the Prehistoric World! It can crush a T-Rex and it eats Crocodiles as big as a truck. It has a crushing force of 7 eiffel towers. One badass snake, more badass than most dinosaurs.
Huh? I know 5 of my friends love Yaks! In my opinion, they are perfectly balanced between Overrated and Underrated. - DerpaHerpaMerpa
This list is about underrated animals, not uprated animals (lions, elephants, etc). Kangaroos shouldn't be on this list. - DinoLover4242
They seem harmless but can break your ribs
And they have a reason to be *Cowares* - DerpaHerpaMerpa
